You've learned the essentials for creating a slide show. Now imagine that your presentation is ready, and you need to prepare to present it.
Start with previewing it as a slide show on your computer. Then run a spelling check, get input from others, and check your notes.
Use print preview to see how handouts and notes will look when printed, and select the right printing options for them.
When it's ready to go, place your presentation on a CD or on a computer that you'll have access to when you present. The PowerPoint packaging feature helps you here.
